For the third year, VBO Tickets is proud to announce that this month it is a “Champion Sponsor” of Aug. 28’s “The Inaugural Covenant House California Golf Classic” fundraiser, which will benefit the young people who call The Covenant House “home” in Oakland and Berkeley. In 2016, VBO Tickets donated funds and manpower to assist the homeless of Oakland on Thanksgiving, joining CHC in a holiday meal that fed more than 100 people.
“We’re very proud to support Covenant House California for the third consecutive year,” said VBO Tickets President David Boehme. “VBO Tickets is a company dedicated to giving back to the community and the environment in various ways and the important work that the CHC does in the Bay Area is priceless to the young people whose lives are positively changed. We believe these positive impacts resonate throughout our local communities and truly make a long-lasting difference.”
The celebration kicks off Monday, Aug. 28 at 11:30 a.m. at the Crow Canyon Country Club (711 Silver Lake Road) in Danville, with lunch and registration, and will continue with a “shotgun start” at 1 p.m. The gathering will conclude with a silent auction and dinner at 6 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Covenant House California.
“Covenant House California is a non-profit youth homeless shelter that provides sanctuary and support for homeless and trafficked youth, ages 18-24. We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education … and most importantly, to be loved. For two years now, VBO has helped us provide these things,” said CHC Development Officer Noel Russell.
“Through VBO Tickets’ continued support we have been able to house more young people and provide them with the resources they need to heal and grow. VBO has not only limited their generosity to helping bring dignity to our youth by meeting their basic needs — they have also gone above and beyond to bring joy and empowerment to our youth by blessing them with gifts on special occasions, wonderful holiday parties, and special experiences that give our youth a sense of pride and a true reflection of their self-worth,” Russell stated. “VBO is exemplary in their expression of compassion and a desire to serve those in need in the local community — they are truly a force for good in the lives of so many young people who call CHC “home.” It takes a village to care for the youth we serve, and we are deeply grateful to have VBO as part of our community.”
